Guilford College Reviews
As a returning student transferring from a community college, I wasn't sure what to expect from a four-year university. I had high standards and expectations, especially of a school's policies in dealing with COVID-19. With their own garden, the natural areas including Guilford Woods, attentive professors, and friendly students, Guilford met and exceeded my expectations. I'm a political science major, and while my classmates and I may not always see eye-to-eye with each other, our political discussions are always fact-based and respectful. However, with the new school president, many majors including political science are being cut. Fortunately, current majors can finish their degrees at the school, but this makes the community-centered school less inviting for the doers, dreamers, and go-getters that us Guilfordians are.
Guilford College is the perfect example of a home away from home. I'm from Virginia, so the thought moving to a different state and going hours away from my family did scare me. However, after going on my first visit there I fell in love with the people there and the campus. The campus is the perfect environment where you can enjoy continuing your education while appreciating beautiful scenery around you. Even the people there were so welcoming and kind, without even knowing me the girls soccer team there welcomed me with open arms like I was one of their own. I've never felt closer to a group of girls that fast, it was relieving to know that leaving my first visit at Guilford I already had friends to remind me of how great the college is. Guilford is truly a place where your education is valued and one where you are appreciated, there's no other college I'd see myself attending because it wouldn't offer the kind of welcoming, family feeling that Guilford does!
Due to COVID-19, I'm an online student for the Fall 2020 semester. This is nothing new to me as I completed my Associate's degree online while in community college. The way that the professors have handled this change from a traditional classroom setting to online with discussion boards and Zoom meetings is outstanding. All of my professors have been extremely accommodating with explaining materials as necessary, clarifying what students don't fully grasp, and with office hours as needed. When people say, "We're all in this together," Guilford truly embodies those words not only in the faculty, but in the students as well.
